What story does your group tell about your character? Back in high school my friends and I played World of Darkness games for a while. Mostly Vampire and Werewolf. While Vampire was our go to game that I usually GM’d, we would sometimes take a night to let one of my other friends GM a Werewolf story. This kid was …

Most impressive thing another’s character did? Yesterday’s post had a lot to do with the story I’m going to write today. I gave a very vague overview of what transpired, but gave no detail. Let me shed some light on the experience. The problem player in our AD&D 2nd Edition game was becoming a bigger and bigger problem. Eventually he …

Kickstarter – Elemental Mystics

Rob Kalajian kickstarter Leave a Comment

Another Kickstarter pick, already? Yes. Already. Just look this game. I didn’t even look up how it’s played before I backed the project. I backed it purely on it’s design. Of course I went back and watched the “How to Play” video right after to make sure I didn’t make a horrible mistake. It’s a bit over the top, but …

Character moment you’re proudest of? Today’s prompt is a tough one, mostly because it ties in with tomorrow’s “Most impressive thing another’s character did?” I guess I can give an overview today, and get into the gory details tomorrow. The session was back in ‘99. We had gotten a group together at college to play AD&D 2nd Edition in my …

Best gaming session since August 2015? Like I stated in my first #RPGaDay post, I don’t play many RPGs anymore. It’s something I’m hoping to fix, but I need to find the time, the system, and the people to play. That being said, I still had a few experiences over the past year to draw from for the this question. …

Kickstarter – Pages of War

Rob Kalajian kickstarter Leave a Comment

Pages of War is a game I previously previewed on Purple Pawn, and has just hit Kickstarter. There’s been a few changes since I’ve played, but apparently nothing so major that my impressions of the game should differ in any way. In the game you’re a bard telling the story of one of four great races: The Men of Blue …

#RPGaDay 2016 – Day 1

Rob Kalajian tabletop Leave a Comment

The past few years I’ve seen several people participate in #RPGaDay, an event in August where people write about a specific RPG-related topic for each day in August. It’s a great idea, but since I really don’t play many RPGs as much as I’d like to anymore I’ve just enjoyed reading everyone’s content without participating. Then I read Thomas Deeny’s, …
